I had some chard to use up. Also some figs that I had frozen and were saving for pizza. Perfect. I trolled the web for pizza, figs and chard. A little stinky cheese, and we are all set.
Balsamic chard, fig and gorgonzola pizza
1 large bunch chard
1 tbs olive oil
6 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbs balsamic vinegar
A pinch of salt and lots of pepper
Roll the whole bunch of chard together tightly (leave the stems on – they’re delicious!) and slice into 1/2-inch ribbons. Heat olive oil on medium flame and fry the garlic until fragrant, then add the chard. Cook until completely wilted and dark green, then toss with balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper.
1 C Gorgonzola or blue cheese, crumbled
12 -15 Fresh figs, sliced
2 tbs olive oil
Freshly ground black pepper
Freshly made or prepared pizza crust, enough for 2 crusts
Preheat oven to 500F. Brush crust with olive oil. Grind black pepper over crust. Layer cheese, chard and figs. Bake until cheese melts and crust starts to brown.
